Gazivoda Lake (Albanian: Liqeni i Gazivodës, or Liqeni i Ujmanit) or Gazivode Lake (Serbian: Језеро Газиводе / Jezero Gazivode), is an artificial lake in Serbia and Kosovo.[1] Gazivoda Lake has an area of 11.9 km2 (4.6 sq mi) of which 9.2 km2 (3.6 sq mi) reside in Kosovo's territory and 2.7 km2 (1.0 sq mi) in Serbia's territory. The lake is formed by the damming of the Ibar River, which flows into the lake.

The control of the lake and the dam has been a matter of dispute between the governments of Serbia and Kosovo for years.[2][3] The dam is currently controlled by the Serbs from North Kosovo loyal to Serbia.[4]
